Since I've been so sick, we haven't started on the nursery. Brent and I plan to start in a couple of weeks (we're getting some help to move our furniture), so once we're done, I'll show pictures of the completed room. For now, I just want to share what ideas I have and what I'm envisioning.
I originally wanted to painted the accent wall grey and do the nursery grey and green, but Brent wasn't really into it. I love turquoise though, so I'm still pretty happy with the color combo. We're going to paint one accent wall turquoise and wanted to give you an idea of the color. :)
But at least I have Etsy, lol. I have decided on doing the bed skirt grey with white polka dots and a plain white sheet for the mattress. I've gone back and forth on the bumpers...and for now I've decided not to get bumpers for the crib. If I change my mind, I can always buy them later. I'd hate to spend a lot of money on them and then never use them.
The grey bed set below is a picture to show the fabric choice I want. The second crib is the crib I actually own. On December 26, 2012 (yes, you read that right), Walmart had a huge baby sale. This was when I was in the mist of my great couponing days...and this Graco crib was on sale for $99.97 and the mattress came with it free. People thought I was crazy for buying it, since I wasn't even pregnant at the time, lol...but I can tell you now, we are pretty happy I did. The crib alone retails for about $180.00, so that was quite a bit of savings including the free mattress.
I've decided that I want a grey chevron pillow (the orange one below is just to show you the style), the turquoise love pillow, and the orange owl pillow for the crib. I know I can't really have pillows in the crib with baby, but for now it's really just for decor. We also have a double guest bed in the nursery, so the pillows can go the bed. :)
PS...do you think I'm a bad mom for making the baby have the bed in it's room when I have my own craft room, lol?
I want the ottoman to be navy with white polka dots and turquoise piping. But if we find out we're having a girl, I might change my mind about it. We'll see.
If I keep the navy, I may order the diaper caddy as is. I was originally thinking of just having it completely orange and white polka dots.
I kept poking around and found these wonderful little gems. With re-doing my craft room, I actually have an extra white IKEA Expedit sitting around in my house. We would just need to buy the drawer inserts, legs, and some cute knobs. I think this will be a great compromise. Not a lot of money and less painting for me to do. Remember, I'm already committed to painting the rocking chair and the turquoise accent wall. Brent will actually help me paint the wall, I just have to do the edges. :)
Poms are so popular right now, but I'm only gonna put them up if we have a girl. I know Brent will think they're too girly and I don't want to fight him on it, lol.
Well, you can tell that I've been having fun on Pinterest, even though I'm still not feeling that great. We don't find out the gender until Friday evening, so I'll try to post again on Saturday to share our news! I hope you all have a great Thursday!
